Instructor: Jake Miller


Dates: June 20-August 7, 2021 (Asynchronous)
Registration fee: $75; optional add-on of one graduate workshop credit hour (additional $162)

Join us online Summer 2021 with Technology Integration Specialist Jake Miller to explore ed tech tools and classroom-tested strategies for designing powerful blended learning experiences for all settings - remote, face-to-face, and a blend of the two. Participants will take a deep dive into tools such as Flipgrid, Edpuzzle, Pear Deck, Loom, Screencastify, and Nearpod  to learn how they can be used effectively in all settings to promote student learning, gather formative assessment data, enable differentiation and support students’ social-emotional needs.

Participants will engage with asynchronous videos from the instructor about the strategies and tools, try out the tools on their own, and participate in occasional synchronous topical discussions. The course will be hosted in Google Classroom, giving participants an experience with this learning management system from the learner perspective.

  • Participants will earn 12.5 CE hours, or can opt to earn one graduate workshop credit hour with an additional tuition fee of $162.  When you register for the workshop, you will be asked if you are also interested in the graduate workshop credit option. (Note: Participants pursuing credit are required to complete an additional assignment).
  • The workshop will be hosted in Google Classroom. Please provide a non-school Gmail address at registration that can be used to invite you to join the workshop.
